    The lead soldier is the clearest to make out; his long legs taper from narrow hips and a boxy, solid chest. He is the first man I have seen in person. My eyes widen to take him in. He is more fascinating than the chapel murals of the sky-god, Anu, and his son, Enlil, the fire-god. ^This is on the third page; the first time the MC meets the guy who - surprise! - will become the love interest.Every now and then, I like to take a break from my TBR. ...

    Insta-love. Rape. Stereotypes. Patriarchy. Manipulation. YA tropes. It was a lost cause. If only I knew.

    Tremors rack my body. I cover my mouth, locking in a gasp. Rajah Tarek is here. The ruler of the Tarachand Empire has come to Samiya. I hold still, my flesh shivering. I promised myself I would not DNF The Hundredth Queen. As I slogged through, wading across pages of murk and badly written metaphors, I thought to myself, "I'm almost there. The end is nigh. What is the point in dropping this book now?"But I quickly realised that finishing this bo...

    The Hundredth Queen is by far one of my favorite books of 2017. I received an ARC of this incredible book before it even had a cover and I was completely obsessed after just reading one chapter. I am one of those readers who is usually drawn to a book because of the cover so when I received this book I read it just because the synopsis sounded intriguing.....and WOW am I happy that I gave this book a chance! The Hundredth Queen blew me away.....I...

    With that gorgeous cover and amazing reviews I was really excited when I got a copy of this. I went into this book not knowing much so when I started it I was afraid it was going to be too similar to Wrath and the Dawn. However despite it similarites it had some unique elements. For one the Rajah doesnt kill his wives he makes them do it themselves in a rank tournement where each time he chooses a new bride she has to fight all of the Rajahs cou...

    Another appropriating white author who doesn't understand that india is not a monolith. Trash.

    2.5 stars. Ehhh no this is nothing like The Wrath and the Dawn. That was a well-written book with an amazing main character, vivid world, and... a good story. The writing here is average and definitely awkward at times. The plot twists are predictable and the relationships are a bit forced/hollow. Buuuut it's still entertaining in parts and I kept reading because there's a freaking princess/guard trope and it gets me EVERY TIME. The basic idea is...

    It's been a few days since I've read The Hundredth Queen, and already I can't remember much of it, though I can say for sure that it was like reading a summary of every single YA fantasy out there ever.The storyline was interesting enough - Kalinda gets chosen as the rajah's hundredth queen, the ultimate title. Though to keep that title, she'll have to fight for it. Any of the rajah's other queens and courtesans can challenge her to a fight to th...

    ***** 5 Stars *****I'm shocked to see some of these ratings. If I read this in high school, I know I would've been going to class with only a few hours of sleep. The younger version of me that loved Hunger Games and Twilight would have LOVED this book. This story has everything I enjoy. A strong heroine. Unbreakable sisterhood. Magical encounters. I couldn't put this down!Yes, there is an insta-love chemistry, but I didn't find anything wrong wit...
